Rajat Patidar, Virat Kohli help RCB snap six-match losing streak

Rajat Patidar’s explosive half-century, combined with a strong performance from the spinners, propelled the Royal Challengers Bangalore to a 35-run victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL on Thursday, snapping their six-match losing streak. Patidar’s 50 runs off just 20 balls provided a striking contrast to Virat Kohli’s steady 51 runs off 43 balls as RCB posted a total of 206 for seven after deciding to bat first.
